Winter Elements Yoga Retreat for Women

Friday until Sunday – November 27th-29th

Jill and Jesse are delighted to be bringing you this UK retreat for Women.

Inspired by nature and the elements, and set in the magical grounds of Wasing Estate over three days and two nights, we invite you into our world of winter woodland walks, cosy sheepskins, warm cacao and slippers by the fire, nourishing soul food, and of course, specially curated yoga practices to embrace the journey of our bodies, minds and souls into the winter months.

This is a Women only retreat, welcoming an all-elements connection to nature, and weaving in deep care for our health and immunity through loving practices, plus time to reconnect to ourselves and community.

The retreat venue is a beautiful countryside location set in Berkshire (45 miles from London) and offers rustic farmhouse and cottage accommodation, with the most inviting private woodlands. If you are feeling wild and brave, a winter dip in the lake might entice you, all under the rising November Full Beaver Moon.

Home Farmhouse accommodation available for retreats, weddings, shoots and holiday lettings at Wasing Park Aldermaston under and hour from London

Along with a warming, earthy presence, Jesse and Jill offer an abundance of practices, from yoga nidra to ayurvedic yoga massage, slow somatic Scaravelli yoga to dynamic music-themed flow, restorative yoga and pranayama to forest bathing, soul coaching and kirtan. Our bellies and digestion will be looked after by Colline’s kitchen, bringing a sattvic, seasonally sensitive blend of vegan and vegetarian delights to our lips, and taking care of the all-important afternoon tea and cake.

Your accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner, unlimited teas and coffees are fully catered for, including lunch on our final day, as are your twice daily yoga practices and an exclusive immunity boosting care package. Our outline schedule is below, and we might reserve one or two elements of surprise too!
